rustic chic bridals

This styled bridal portrait session from Laura Gordon is absolutely fantastic. The film photography + natural lighting and stunning floral crown and bouquet from Anthomanic are breathtaking. Plus, I love it when people come together to help each other out and that’s exactly what happened with this shoot. Laura had a vision, her photographer friend Abby volunteered to model, Rebekah (another photographer) offered up her wedding dress for Abby to wear, and Amanda of Anthomanic did the florals! And about that floral design – some of the components are spray-painted gold. Isn’t that genius?!

I knew I wanted it to be a bridal shoot right away because bridal portraits are one of my favorite things to shoot! I wanted to create a scene that was totally me. I know that sounds kind of odd, but this is for my portfolio. I wanted to have something really awesome that reflected my style. In my mind I knew I wanted to evoke a dreamy, soft feeling while still being very beautiful. With a gorgeous model like Abby and the perfect location all I needed were some florals.

I gave Amanda of Anthomanic a description of the type of shoot I was looking to create, told her I wanted a bouquet and a floral crown, and listed some of my favorite flowers. It was a gazillion degrees outside but they day of the shoot finally came! On the way I gave Amanda a call to check up on things and she began to describe the bouquet. She said, ‘I hope I didn’t go too crazy with the spray paint!’ To be completely honest, I was kind of nervous when she said that. Spray paint? On a bouquet? Then she went on to describe it and it sounded amazing! After I saw the bouquet and the headpiece I almost died. They were so much more than I’d hoped for!”
